A friend of mine runs a tennis shop and suggested we'd check a few of my racquets on his RDC-machine. FYI, they were all strung (weight) but had very old stringjobs in them (flex, for what it's worth). I have not converted the weight from metrics, but there are conversion tables readily available online... Sorry, no balance numbers this time.

Here are the specs:

(Weight Flex Swingweight)
Adidas GT-X (Lendl) 340 g 53 314
Prince woodie 376 35 335
Prince Mono (Connors) 349 62 326
Le Coq Sp. TF-40 (Noah) 356 60 342
Lacoste LT301(?) (Forget) 358 62 330
Estusa PB Braided 356 63 311
Rossignol F200 349 33 345
Rossignol F250 358 60 349
Sergio Tacchini Syncrony 383 56 355
Prince Boron LB 338 58 338
Yonex RD70 long (Kourn.) 348 58 347
Spalding pro stock 200 365 69 345

Some numbers really stood out, like the flex of the Rossignol F200. 33 is soft... The Boron was also way softer than I thought it would be, at 58. The Tacchini is a monster, but I'm having that one, and the F250, restrung to play with again later.

I'll probably bring some other racquets in to check on the machine, in which case I'll post the results here if you're interested.:-)

great post!
Is very intetesting. The flex of the F200 is insane, even more flexible than the woodie!!!
What f200 version you have?

The RA on the F200 seems way too low. Perhaps the racquet has been used a lot!!

I had few F200s and most of their flex ratings came out around 42-45 strung.

I have both the gray and the blue version of the F200. The one I tested was the blue one, and it has, as psp2 pointed out, seen a lot of use.

Yahoo! I'm gonna go out and hit with the F-200 I just got in a trade - sounds too buttery to be true...

Rossignol F200 349 33 345

33?? how can you play with that

You'd hit it and the ball would slide off at an angle away from you

Well, it's soft, but it's not like playing with noodles...
